Queens College Undergraduate Science Research Day 2012

October 16, 2012, in the Student Union Ballroom

This event has passed -- Check back for photos and presentations from faculty and students!

Queens College 75th Anniversary LogoThe Division of Math and Natural Sciences, Queens College, CUNY, is organizing the Queens College Undergraduate Science Research Day.  This is a great opportunity for students to share their research with the rest of the QC community -- and with visiting high school students.  This year, the event is part of the official calendar celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Queens College.  So, you can be part of this historic moment for the College. 

Queens College undergraduates from any department who are doing science research are invited to present at this event.   Also, high school students or other undergraduates who have been doing research with a Queens College faculty member or laboratory are also welcome to participate.

The event was held on October 16 in the ballroom (4th floor) of the Student Union Building on the Queens College campus, and it consisted of a poster session (9:30am-1:30pm) with students presenting their current research.  The event also featured videos of student research.  In the afternoon, students gave oral presentations (1:30pm-3:00pm).  The event was free and open to the public.

Present your Poster on October 16

Create a poster about your research to bring to the event on October 16. 

Photo/Video Release
If you didn't already submit a photo/video release form, then you should bring one with you on this day.  This form is needed because a campus photographer might take pictures during the event. If you don't want to be photographed, then you just need to watch out for the photographers that day and tell them not to take your picture (they normally ask first if it is OK).

Details about the Event
Your videos will be on display during the event, and you will be available to answer questions near your poster. More details about where/when you are supposed to show up on October 16 will be posted on this website (and sent out by email) closer to the event.
